After the question's been popped, that selfie's gotta be snapped! #Sorrynotsorry, but engagement ring selfies aren't going anywhere—and we're not complaining. But why should they? When the love of your life proposes, trust us when we say that you're going to want to shout it from the rooftops. But since you don't want a noise disturbance ticket (especially with a wedding to pay for), the next best thing is to shout it on social media with a #ringselfie. And take it from these ladies, there's a million and one ways to do it.
We scoured all of social media to uncover the best #engagementringselfies that are worthy of all the 'likes.' From the most beautiful of backdrops to incorporating furry friends and even fiancés, there are tons of ways to make this photo count. After all, a photo is worth a thousand words (and even more likes!), especially since the ring selfie is basicallyyy the modern day engagement announcement.
These days, tons of brides-to-be choose to announce their news with a post-proposal photo. So in-between saying yes and insuring that bling (You have Jewelers Mutual on speed dial, right? Just imagine dropping an uninsured ring in the ocean while lining up the perfect seaside shot...The horror.), it's time to get picture-perfect.
Professional wedding photographer Paige Jones has these tips for the best ring selfie: keep your hand raised in the air, catch maximum natural light, and nail down the right angle. But once you've got the elements down, it's time to start snapping—and hashtagging. (Don't forget to tag #BridesRings for a chance to be featured on our page!)
